Slow Students


Teaching and learning at a leisurely place.


"The Slow philosophy is not about doing everything at a snail’s pace. It’s about seeking to do everything at the right speed. Savoring the hours and minutes rather than just counting them. Doing everything as well as possible, instead of as fast as possible"

Carl Honoré, In Praise of Slowness

Why Should Students Slow Down?

I'm Joe, a lecturer in Geography at Coventry University.

I have found that students are busy. Usually too busy. They're worried about their workloads, finances and future careers. The use of university counselling and mental health services are on the rise.

And it's not just students. A recent book called The Slow Professor discusses how staff feel their workloads are too heavy. The book makes the simple point that working too hard is not always desirable nor is it healthy.

Here, I blog about the teaching and learning strategies I use to slow down the pace of learning. There’s resources for students and staff interested in a different pedagogical pace.
